Downsizing for Retirement
Whether clients want to save money, travel more, or live in a home that is more accessible, downsizing can be great for retirement living. It is common that most think about downsizing for retirement. We always tell our clients that come to us that they are not alone. Nearly short of 50% of Americans plan to downsize approaching their golden years. An ideal and practical way to lower clients monthly living expenses and save time on upkeeping a home. Some advantages to consider: the opportunities to clear clutter from your home; moving into a small home will more than likely lower your utility bill; less maintenance and cleaning; if you paid your home off the equity that is more likely than not to be valuable in addition to your assets; selling your current home adjusting to a small space having more money to do what you want with; all of these advantages can not only save you money in the long run but time especially as being older. Worth advantage come disadvantage and of course individualism meaning what works for some might not work for others. For instance, a small home means downsizing and maybe that is a very difficult thing to put into reality, having fewer guest over a time, packing-moving-settling in a new home can be overwhelming emotionally-mentally-physical and not something you are fully ready to do, might have to switch to owning your own home to renting someone else property, and lastly if you live in a good area you might have to take what is available in a more rigid one compromising the lifestyle you have been comfortable with for years.
